He is president and chief Visionary of Connection Apps Inc. which has a mission to help people develop the habits that lead to happiness, life satisfaction and human connection. Rnold's basic premise is that if people can eliminate some of the unconscious behaviours that lead to relationship conflict and friction and build the habits that make people feel love and appreciated, you will be happier, healthier, more successful and more satisfied with your life.As a wellness advocate he teaches about the power of interpersonal mindfulness and helps people, teams and organizations integrate the Connection Habits™  into their routines.Although he has over 20 years of experience helping businesses grow, his happy marriage and two loving daughters are his greatest source of pride.    Some of the questions Rnold discusses:What is the happy relationship ratio?What is the one thing that all successful relationships have in common?What is the one thing that unhealthy relationships have in common?What are some techniques to avoid arguments? What should work to avoid arguments but doesn't?Why is behaviour change so hard?How long does it actually take to form a new habit?What are the three things that need to occur simultaneously in order for you to take action?What are the habits that lead to that honeymoon feeling in your relationship?Why are we our own worst enemy?Why is logic the enemy of transformational change? Rnold Smith on LinkedIn: Connection App: Connection App on Facebook:
Feedback.   Leadership Coach Dagmar Meachem joins me for a Courage Confab discussion on Feedback.  We look at creating a culture where feedback is welcomed, encouraged and trusted.  How to give good balanced feedback and strategies to incorporate feedback as a leader.Randall Stutman founder and co-head of the Leadership Practice  the Admired Leadership Institute states that Balanced Feedback requires a person to give both positive and negative feedback in an equally vivid, elaborate, and detailed manner.Radical Candor - 11 Ways to Get Feedback From Others: Tip 1: Have a go-to questionA question like, “Is there anything I could do or stop doing that would make it easier to work with me?”Tip 2: Embrace the discomfortAfter asking for feedback, stop talking and “embrace the discomfort.” Count to 7 and commit to allowing the other person to speak first. Tip 3: Listen with the intent to understand, not to respondDon’t interrupt or argue when someone gives you feedback. Just listen, focus on understanding what the person is telling you, and try to learn something from it.  Tip 4: Reward criticism to get more of itWhen someone provides feedback to you, treat it like a treasured gift! Tip 5: Ask for public criticismAnother way to show that you appreciate the criticism you receive is to ask those who are most comfortable criticizing you to give the same feedback in front of others. Tip 6: Criticize yourself in publicCriticizing yourself in public is a great way to show that you feel comfortable acknowledging that you aren’t perfect, that you have room for improvement.Tip 7: Call out body languageEven if people aren’t telling you what they really think with their words, their body language may still be sending a more candid message. Tip 8: Relish being wrongShow people that you are happy when they prove you wrong. Tip 9: Show that you careWhen you show you care, you build a relationship and you build trust. People will stop seeing you as the “jerk in charge” and assuming the worst. Tip 10: Don’t try to change your styleFigure out how to use your personal style, be it very vocal or very quiet, tough or gentle, approachable or intimidating, to invite criticism of yourself, to remind people that you want to be challenged.  Tip 11: Get theatricalSometimes you have to be really over the top to get feedback.

Barrie Street.  "I am 84 and feel 48. I’m blessed to have a passion for fitness, which I would love to spread in my blog  I would also be delighted to reach folks who are less than 50. The message I am trying to impart is that ANYONE of ANY AGE can be fit and it is NEVER too late to start. I believe - indeed I know - that fitness can be inextricably woven into our fabric."Teaching has been one of my major passions, mainly involved at the secondary school level.I am entering my 57th year of teaching Math with the same passion as when I began. Spending so much time with young people – whether teaching or coaching them soccer, field hockey, tennis, cross-country running, cricket or ping pong – has kept me young in mind. Young people will always remain the back-bone of society and to help them grow and mature has always been a privilege.Travelling has occupied a great deal of my leisure time, having visited some 50 countries – many  of which we erroneously call Third World nations – sharing their cultures and learning to appreciate their diverse lifestyles. Also learning to acknowledge how gracious and happy they are, despite often living in destitute conditions and being without the basic essentials of life. I have learned far more from them about the true values of life than I have from our own materialistic society. I have often encouraged my students to travel and acquire a better understanding of life.Volunteering has probably brought me the most satisfaction. I have been able to teach teachers in Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Jamaica and also teach children in Guatemala and Costa Rica. I have come away from all these experiences more enriched. Helping to build a village for abandoned children in Costa Rica 40 years ago – one of the boys I found living in a cardboard box on the street still keeps in touch with me – reminded me of my own childhood. My parents abandoned me when I was 6 and this experience gave me a compassion and understanding which otherwise I would never have acquired. Another exciting project was collecting a mountain of soccer equipment here in Vancouver – all of which would have been consigned to the garbage dump – and delivering it to a black South African township. This was gold to the kids.Sports and exercise have brought me colossal fitness and health. I played team sports from the age of 10 to my mid-forties and then I began running, culminating in a marathon within a year. I was hooked. At 50, I graduated to triathlons and competed in my first Ironman, also within a year. From then on, I have been running, playing tennis and climbing our local iconic mountain – the Grouse Grind – which I have completed more than 2000 times.Barrie Street's blog can be found at

On this episode we dive into the career transformation of winemaker Costa Gavaris.  Costa is co-owner and winemaker at Rigour & Whimsy Wines and happily resides with his family in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. Until a few years ago, Costa was firmly ensconced in a career in health care - health data collection to be precise.  Unhappy, he made the difficult choice to follow his passion. That passion turned out to be wine.  So he and his wife Jody bought a piece of land and started growing grapes.  Their wines are now distributed across the country.  He gives credit in the ability to make the move toward following his passion, in part, to being part of a men's group (ManTalks and Connor Beaton) and ultimately, being surrounded by a supportive group of men, who nudged him forward.
